I hope I am posting in the correct forum....
I want to know if there's a chance for a machine to be infected when connected to a router in which 2 other computers are connected to it ( suspected to be infected with a virus or something)

Thank you Neil Jones
Some infections spread round networks so technically yes it is possible from the machines, not from the router itself.
Thanks too Dan, I'm planning to post a log in the malware forum... Also, my internet connection gets disconnected very often..
My advice would be to ensure you have a solid third-party firewall installed, and disable File Sharing. As Neil says, you are at risk when connecting to a network with infected machines. If you like, I can ask a few of our Malware staff to have a look at this, as they may be able to provide you with some extra steps to stay safe.
